A very popular site has some "Tyrannosaurus rex" teeth.  Here are two pics of one. Description does say Morocco yet also says T. rex.   I see a repaired carcharodontosaurus tooth ( a dino not mentioned in the posting). Anybody have a different opinion?  This person also has incredibly small hands for a 5.85 inch tooth!

This is not a T. rex tooth, it is a Carcharodontosaurus tooth and a very bad one at that! It appears to be heavily restored! Stay away from this tooth!

Indeed, absolutely not T. rex. This is made from Carcharodontosaur tooth parts. Likely a composite of different teeth.

I'd stay away from this.

Carcharodontosaurus teeth are often sold as African Trex teeth just to attract sales.  Due avoid for the reasons stated.   Like your comment on the size of hands.  One seller I know, on our favorite auction site,  uses her daughters hands to hold specimens when photographing .  Just makes them look larger.
